Ufundi Group's story

The borrower, Nzigire, is the leader of the "Ufundi" credit group. She is 39 years old and the mother of eight children who all go to school. Her husband is involved in commerce.

Nzigire was able to start her own business thanks to funds received from her father-in-law. Later on, she joined the Ufundi credit group, of which she has been a member for more than five years.

With this new loan, she intends to buy 25 goats, for future retail resale. Nzigire wishes to see her business grow, which will help her to take proper care of her family. She thanks Hekima and its employees for facilitating access to credit.
